Hebrews 7:15–19 (ESV)

Jesus Compared to Melchizedek

15 This becomes even more evident when another priest arises in the likeness of Melchizedek, 16 who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life. 17 For it is witnessed of him,

       “You are a priest forever,

after the order of Melchizedek.”

18 For on the one hand, a former commandment is set aside because of its weakness and uselessness 19 (for the law made nothing perfect); but on the other hand, a better hope is introduced, through which we draw near to God.

 

Today’s passage continues to compare Jesus to Melchizedek.  Verse 18 brings back studying Walther’s “Law and Gospel”.   The Law is good, but instead of saving us, it condemns us.  It shows us our sins.  It makes us realize that we need a Savior.  That is Jesus Christ who is a better hope, he is our Savior who saves us from the law.  Jesus comes in the form of Melchizedek.

 

I pray: O Lord, the old system of the law condemns us and we see that we fall short.  Thank you for Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.  You are our new hope.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
